SBC Executive Committee votes to 'disfellowship' 2 churches


NASHVILLE (BP) – The Southern Baptist Convention's Executive Committee has voted to "disfellowship" two churches, one in North Carolina and the other in New Jersey.

The Executive Committee took the action on Tuesday at the recommendation of the Credentials Committee.

“The Credentials Committee determined that these churches were outside the bounds of fellowship with Southern Baptists,” Texas pastor and Executive Committee chairman Jared Wellman told Baptist Press.

The North Carolinia church describes itself on its website as a "Welcoming, LGBTQIA Affirming Baptist Church.”

The New Jersey Church had been accused of "discriminatory behavior."
